I need someone to recommend a good cpu cooler. If you're naming a liquid cooled system, please make sure it is worry free.

I also need to know which DDR3 should I use?

  1. You could buy a Phenom II X4 955 BE and get the same performance by upping the multiplier by 1.

    Cooler wise the Corsair H50 and H70 are very good.
    The H70 is very good but loud on full speed that can be adjusted though.
    Air coolers like the Megahalems are quieter.

    Ram wise 1600 Mhz and low cas would be good.

    Thanks for your input. I was just wondering if you knew anything about cpu coolers? I am torn between the Corsair Hydro Series H70 CPU cooler, and the Ultra ChillTec Black Overclocking CPU Cooler. Which do you think is better?
